          105 ILCS 5/2-3.77               from Ch. 122, par. 2-3.77            
          105 ILCS 5/3-14.21              from Ch. 122, par. 3-14.21           
          105 ILCS 5/17-2.2c              from Ch. 122, par. 17-2.2c           
        Changes the title and  replaces  everything  after  the  enacting      
   clause.    Amends  the  State  Finance  Act,  creating  the  Temporary      
   Relocation  Expenses  Revolving  Grant  Fund  in  the  State Treasury.      
   Authorizes the State Board of Education to distribute loan  and  grant      
   moneys  appropriated  from that Fund to school districts for temporary      
   relocation expenses incurred due  to  natural  or  man-made  disasters      
   which  destroy  school  buildings or due to condemnation by a regional      
   superintendent of a school building that  is  unsafe,  unsanitary,  or      
   unfit  for  occupancy.   Provides  that  a school district must levy a      
   temporary relocation expense tax and pay  over  the  proceeds  to  the      
   State  for  deposit  into  the Temporary Relocation Expenses Revolving      
   Grant Fund (instead of the General Revenue Fund)  in  order  to  repay      
   amounts  distributed  to  the district from the newly created fund for      
   its temporary relocation expenses.  Limits the duration of the levy to      
   a maximum of 7 years.  Authorizes the State Board of Education to make      
   grants from  the  newly  created  Fund  if  the  district's  temporary      
   relocation  expenses  exceed  the  amount that the district is able to      
   repay to the  State  through  insurance  and  relocation  expense  tax      
   proceeds. Requires a district to hold a public hearing on, and adopt a      
   plan  to  correct,  building  violations  identified  in a life-safety      
   report or  ordered  by  the  regional  superintendent.   Requires  the      
   regional superintendent to recommend that the State Board of Education      
   withhold  from  a district's general State aid an amount sufficient to      
   correct identified building violations that the district has failed to      
   correct by the time the next annual  inspection  report  is  prepared.      
   Effective immediately.
